Ruth's Rantings

Ok. So I lost 100 pounds. Big number. Hard work. A lot to be proud of.

The story doesn't end there. In about 3 years, I gained back 80.

The story doesn't end there either. That's because I'm focused on getting back to my healthy weight. Again. And dare I say keep it off?

My Goals:
I'm only 5'1 (and a half), so 235 as a starting weight was pretty extreme to say the least.

My weight loss goal was to lose 10 pounds at a time--and I did it, all the way to 100 pounds!

Now I'm humbled to say I've gained 80 pounds of it back, but am determined to get rid of it. Again.

I want to live my life in the 130s and take on this whole idea of maintaining!

Let's just keep our hands & feet in the cart at all times in case the road gets bumpy!!

My Program:
I've never maintained a weight other than something in the 200s, so this is a first for me. Here's the plan:

- Track my food
- Exercise 4x week
- Keep on Sparking!

Personal Information:
I'm in my 40's, married, & have two cats who tolerate me. If you own a cat, you know what I mean.

I'm a corporate trainer, so much of my job consists of my standing in front of people, facilitating a class. I have an entire wardrobe not even 3 years old, just waiting for me to wear again.

Hey - just stopping by to say that I'm only 5ft tall and started at your exact weight: 235. I can relate to your maintenance struggles, but you can get there again - to your goal, that is!
